Zombie OutRun 5K

Sep 29, 2014 09:42PM ● By Erica Shames

The second annual Zombie OutRun 5K Chase Race will be held Sunday, Oct. 5, at 3 p.m.

The race leaves from Hufnagle Park, with runners aiming to outrun zombies throughout Lewisburg.

Participants can run the race individually or in a team with a flag football belt around their waists. Runners who make it to the finish line with even one of their flags have survived the horde.

Prefer to be a zombie? Put together a costume and race organizers will be on hand to make-up your face and give zombie lessons. Prizes will be awarded for the best zombie as well as fastest survivors — individuals, teams, and veterans.

Runners will receive a Zombie Run T-shirt, and zombies will receive a commemorative button and be eligible for zombie prizes.

Early bird registration fees are: individual runners, $20; team of two to five runners, $15 each person; zombies, $5. Race day fees are $30 for individuals, $25 for teams, and $5 for zombies.

All proceeds from the event benefit the Lewisburg Community Garden, a joint project between the borough of Lewisburg and Bucknell University. It features 40 rental plots and an 8,500 sq. foot communal plot. Food cultivated and harvested on the communal plot is donated to local food access programs and helps to feed individuals in Union and Northumberland counties.
